Dan Rather on the GOP race: "Santorum has the smell of triumph, the smell of victory in his nostrils"

Dan Rather has been reporting on elections and politics for more than six decades, and on Thursday he brought his unprecedented blend of experience and insight to "Piers Morgan Tonight."

Describing the current battle between Mitt Romney and Rick Santorum, the legendary journalist detailed the race for GOP nomination like no one else could:

"I do say that Romney is likely to be the Republican nominee," he told Piers Morgan. "But Santorum is now making his fingernails sweat."

While Rather contends that the Massachusetts front-runner is ultimately the candidate to "bet the rent money on," he suspects the former Pennsylvania senator is poised for success of his own: "Santorum, in my mind, is basically running to be the vice presidential nominee. And he's helped himself in recent days."

Watch the above video, as the seven-time Peabody Award winner lends his expertise to a political climate he says is unlike any he's ever seen.

    Saw the interview with Jon Voigt last night. What a phoney. Does he really expect people to believe that pathetic story about the black man in the rain?

    I disagree. Santorum has the momentum (and what a momentum) and the motivation to win, having started as the underdog. Romney is not completely focused and is a bit out of touch. Santorum's chances for a win are better for now.

    i would love to sip a cup of green tea each morning because it contains L-theanine which calms the mind.

    Just now you can branch out from your daily understanding. Don’t give up your morals for anything. This will lead to a sad and unfulfilling life.

    I intended to put you that bit of word to help thank you over again for all the pleasant suggestions you have discussed in this case. It's particularly open-handed with people like you to deliver openly what exactly many of us would've marketed for an e-book to end up making some bucks for themselves, notably considering that you might well have tried it if you wanted. The principles likewise served as a easy way to know that the rest have a similar dream the same as my very own to find out many more concerning this issue. I am sure there are numerous more enjoyable situations ahead for many who look over your site.

    We want to start our own blog page together on blogspot, but I just thought about us having our own separate google accounts. How can we start a blog page together where it'll be easier for both of us to log on besides just using one person's google account?.

    I want to have a secret blogspot page, but some people I know have been able to find my URL via a Google search...is there a way I can prevent this? I don't want anyone to be able to realistically find the URL unless I give it to them. . . (Please don't suggest that I switch to another blog site.) . . Thanks!.
